There are several documents (internal and external) that can be signed with digital signatures through PDF editing software.  ONLY PDF DOCUMENTS CAN BE DIGITIALLY SIGNED. First you must set up your digital signature ID:
  
MoDOT has made great strides to build a good transportation system and increase taxpayers' trust in its ability to deliver what was promisedInnovative concepts, such as [[:Category:143 Practical Design|Practical Design]] and [[:Category:139 Design - Build|design-build]], were used to deliver those commitments and have made MoDOT a leader in the transportation industry.

These forward-thinking, innovative concepts are reflected in the ''ENGINEERING POLICY GUIDE'' (EPG).  This document provides a single reference for all engineering and engineering-related guidance by combining the former [http://sharepoint/sites/de/RealEstate/SitePages/Home.aspx Right of Way], [http://sharepoint/sites/de/Pages/default.aspx Design], [http://sharepoint/systemdelivery/br/pages/default.aspx Bridge], [http://sharepoint/systemdelivery/cm/Pages/default.aspx Construction], [http://sharepoint/systemdelivery/tr/Pages/default.aspx Traffic] and [http://sharepoint/systemdelivery/mt/default.aspx Maintenance] manuals.

- If you are a Bluebeam Revu user, please see [[media:Creating Digital IDs in Bluebeam Revu(2019).pdf|Creating Digital IDs in Bluebeam Revu]] to set up your digital signature ID.
  
MediaWiki, the engine behind the Wikipedia on the World Wide Web, is the software delivering the EPG.  Over 40 million hits on the EPG endorse this format to be easy to navigate and pleasing to read.  A small [[:Help:Contents|'''HELP ARTICLE''']] is included to assist with helpful hints on how to use the EPG as well as other points of interest.

The following documents may be signed with the digital signatures methods above:
 +
:::*Professional Services Committee (PSC) Letters/Approvals
 +
:::*Design Exceptions
 +
:::*Letters to external partners
 +
:::*Expense Reports
  
 +
If you are not sure if a document can be digitally signed, please reach out to your Assistant District/Division Engineers for guidance.

Main Page Welcome.jpg
MoDOT’s three pillars of “Safety, Service and Stability” steer our leadership and employees. Our commitment to safety includes keeping both customers and ourselves safe. Our service includes providing outstanding customer service, delivering transportation solutions of great value and using resources wisely. Keeping roads and bridges in good condition, operating a reliable and convenient transportation system, and advancing Missouri’s economic development reflect our commitment to stability.
Innovative concepts, such as Practical Design and design-build, are used to deliver our commitments. These and other forward-thinking concepts shape the content of the ENGINEERING POLICY GUIDE (EPG). This document provides a single reference for all engineering and engineering-related Bridge, Construction, Design, Highway Safety & Traffic, Maintenance, Planning and Right of Way guidance.

Information for Digitally Signing Documents

There are several documents (internal and external) that can be signed with digital signatures through PDF editing software. ONLY PDF DOCUMENTS CAN BE DIGITIALLY SIGNED. First you must set up your digital signature ID:

- If you are an Adobe Pro/Reader user, please see the Quick Reference Guide (QRG) Digital signature for Adobe Reader DC or Pro DC to set up your digital signature ID. If you are not including an image of your signature, you can skip Section 1 regarding capturing your signature image; go to Section 2 to set up your Adobe digital signature ID. Unless you work in Construction and Materials, skip Section 3 as well. Page 7 of these instructions will also look a little different due to software updates. The Sign Document window will most likely be Sign With a Digital ID; click on Continue. If you are including an image of your signature you will have to click on Create and follow the steps (also follow the directions in Section 1 for capturing your signature image). Otherwise you will enter your password and click on Sign.
